      While its claim to be The Largest Live Rattlesnake Exhibit on the Planet might set expectations too high, to describe this quirky little place as the simply public extension of proprietor Buzz Ross's private hobby would undersell it. The reality sits somewhere in between. Enter Rattlers and Reptiles 'Rattlesnake Museum' and you're surrounded by banks of cases, tanks and displays containing a huge variety of rattlers, all personally collected by Buzz over the years.

      If you go:
      If Buzz is on duty (he's often out collecting new exhibits) he'll happily tell you all about his precious snakes, but even if he's not there that day, it's still a great place to spend half an hour or so.

      Regrettably, Buzz passed away in 2018.

        I just read the article referenced above (Buzz passed away)-- originally posted in the Houston Chronicle. It really is good. You might want to take a couple of minutes and check it out!
